Dan's view of the Jeep GC
By Dan Constantinide on
Vehicle1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewGenerally, this is a good, reliable automobile. Over 96000 miles with no reliability problems. The transmission shift points are questionable. One odd experience that cost me 800 dollars involved a front drive shaft that all of a sudden developed a leaky joint because it was too short. This happened after replacing the front diff yoke and the corresponding seal (the latter several times). Of course, nobody owned up to any wrong doing or design issues.
Best FeaturesThe steering wheel mounted radio control buttons. The very serene interior cabin design (elegant and tasteful with the leather interior). Very handsome vehicle.
Worst FeaturesBetter match between engine (5.2 L V8) and transmission shift points. A more agile steering system. This thing feels like an elephant in high heels in tight corners, in spite of the relatively small turning radius (or because of it?).
